    Hardcoverç Finn MOBI ì finn mobile, Finn PDFEPUBI usually have a pretty strong stomach when it comes to fiction In television and movies I can handle most anything and am not really bothered by violence gore or abuse Because I don't see pictures when I read this is even the case with books than with visual media give me the nasty stuff I can take itJon Cinch's Finn however bothered me The book is not supremely graphic in its gore but it does contain multiple murders one of which includes body dismemberment and the sexual abuse

    Hardcoverç Finn MOBI ì finn mobile, Finn PDFEPUBI am not even sure where to begin in rating Finn by Jon Clinch First you should probably ignore my star rating because this isn't a book whose rating will give any true indication of the lovehate relationship you may have with the book You'll love it because without a doubt Clinch has a talent as a writer He feels like a modern day Faulkner His language is fluid poetic evocative and then in an instant sparse and nearly mechanical it its accuracy and sharpnessYou will hate it because it is so very brutal Many reviewers have noted the violence of Finn suggesting stridently but somewhat obliuely that they were ill prepared for the violence in the novel As a womyn of color reading this novel I felt extremely uncomfortable with the character positioning of womyn

    Hardcoverç Finn MOBI ì finn mobile, Finn PDFEPUBWell I'm not really sure what to say about Finn I can't say that I loved it nor can I say that I hated it I wish that I had read Huckleberry Finn before reading the book so that I could make comparisons between the two and I would have known about the story line that inspired Clinch I admire that Clinch didn't try to imitate Mark Twain's writing style; to have done so would have robb

    Hardcoverç Finn MOBI ì finn mobile, Finn PDFEPUBThis was not a uick read for me Many times I had to reread passages in order to capture the intent This story will linger with me as I am already incorporating some of the language into my daily conversations; I know it After using these words I have to smile and others ask me what's so funny There were moments when I felt a brief compassion for Finn but they immediately vanished I really enjoyed this exceptional book I know it

    Hardcoverç Finn MOBI ì finn mobile, Finn PDFEPUBThe prose of the omniscient narrator is abundant and colorful; and is counterbalanced by the spare realistic dialogue I like how the characters interrupt each other or is it that the dialogue offsets the narration Regardless; it works even if the characters do say I know it uite a bitOne scene in a book already full of violence reminded me of the scene in the movie Pulp Fiction that's funny despite it concerning a death the one in the car Here it's a well done slapstick kind of scene that brings you up short when you realize where it's heading That led me to reflect that Finn could've been a uentin Tarantino villain and the ending is m

    Hardcoverç Finn MOBI ì finn mobile, Finn PDFEPUBMesmerising imagining of Pap Finn Huck's drunken racist pig of a sire Violent horrific and astonishingly well written Clinch's first novel rushes in where no one's ever dared go What Clinch has accomplished here is nothing short of breath taking Finn's a bad man who isn't the least bit likable which makes this novel even remarkable in its humanity and even tenderness The tone is just remote and scholarly enough to keep one a step away from Finn but I could certainly smell him Highly recommended

    Hardcoverç Finn MOBI ì finn mobile, Finn PDFEPUBThis review was originally posted in 2010 on another site which shall remain namelessIf you are a fan of Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn as I am you may have wondered about Huck's parents Why was his father an alcoholic vagrant who abused his son How did that father end up dead in a house floating down the Mississippi River And who was Huck's mother And what happened to herNow we have the answers to those uestions and They are not provided by Mark Twain but by Jon Clinch in his impressive debut novel FinnFinally we have Huckleberry Finn's back story It helps us understand him a little betterI must admit that there were times as I was reading the book that I wondered if it would have held my interest to the degree that it did if it were about a man named Finn who had no connection with Twain's classic In other words would it still have merit if it had been forced to stand alone Maybe not But it doesn't have toI look forward to reading of Clinch's work

    Hardcoverç Finn MOBI ì finn mobile, Finn PDFEPUBA Tour de Force that is than worthy of its literary heritageFinn by Jon Clinch was something of a reading project for meMy goal First read The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and then read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain and then read Clinch's Finn to truly understand the saga as a wholeMy only uestion coming into Finn was why would Clinch pick such an execrable character to make a book around Why not Thatcher or Douglas or Jim or any of the other charactersUpon reading it I understood immediately Jon Clinch chose to tell Finn's tale to reveal the true horrors of the timePart of the zeitgeist around Twain's Tom Sawyer and Huckl

    Hardcoverç Finn MOBI ì finn mobile, Finn PDFEPUBClinch's Finn is about as useless a man as ever was born dark and disturbed upon occasions than not and yet even with all of the capacity for evil in him Clinch manages to show you enough to allow the occasional pang of sympathy for him As ugly and mean as Finn can be his father is a sorry excuse for a father and without Finn's alcohol fueled excuse for being that way Clinch excels as usual
